Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to compile into a single volume present knowledge which will be useful to a designer applying ceramic materials in aerospace structural applications. All efforts were directed toward the collection of information to acquaint designers with the properties, fundamental principles, characteristics, limitations, utilization and performance of high-temperature, load-bearing ceramic products and with the characteristics, limitations and utilization of ceramic processes. The information provided in this manual was obtained by means of intensive literature surveys and through contacts with various government agencies, industrial concerns, and academic institutions. The case-history approach was used for the compilation of information on the behavior of ceramic products and material systems subjected to thermal loads to provide the background for a possible correlation between known thermal shock theories and brittle materials behavior.
